EIM signs agreement with the largest hyperloop industry contenders
European Rail Infrastructure Managers has signed an agreement with seven of the largest players in the hyperloop industry to support the integration of hyperloop and rail systems.
The seven largest players in the hyperloop industry and the European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM), have signed an agreement with the objective to support the integration of hyperloop and rail systems, and to exchange information and best practices to facilitate cooperation and efficiency for mobility systems of the future. Thanks to this cooperation, rail infrastructure managers and members of EIM and hyperloop companies will be able to learn from each other and identify potential innovation drivers. The hyperloop companies include: Hardt, HyperloopTT, Nevomo, Swisspod Technologies, TransPod, Virgin Hyperloop and Zeleros.
Gorm Frimannslund, the EIM President commented: “Hyperloop can play a key role in the transition towards sustainable, safe, intermodal transportation in EU, in line with the principles of the Green Deal and EU Recovery Fund. Rail infrastructure managers can bring their experience and know-how to facilitate hyperloop system integration into existing rail systems throughout EU. Thanks to this agreement we pave the way to explore promising multimodal, efficient infrastructure transport solutions for the benefit of European citizens and the greater economy.”
The hyperloop companies signatories of this Agreement considers that: “This new cooperation with EIM paves the way to better connect both modes. It will also support hyperloop to become a complementary transport eco-system in the interest of freight customers and passengers.”
